Stuart was delighted to attend an event in support of this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The campaign, which runs from March 20th to April 13th, will see up to 600,000 people taking action to clean up streets, parks and beaches across the country. The Great British Spring Clean brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to show they love where they live and in 2019 more than half a million #LitterHeroes collected more than 900,000 bags of rubbish.

Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton OBE said: “The overwhelming response to last year’s Great British Spring Clean showed that there are many hundreds of thousands of people out there who love where they live and are prepared to take action to make it better for themselves, their families and their communities.
“Litter is an issue that affects every corner of the country and, regardless of politics, the Great British Spring Clean is a campaign everyone can get behind. It is fantastic to have the support of [name of MP] to help us reach our target of getting 600,000 people out, taking action to clean up every corner of the country.”
Stuart said: “I was delighted to attend and speak to members of the Keep Britain Tidy charity to discuss what more can be done in day-to-day life to help reduce the impact that litter has on our environment. We are more environmentally conscious than ever in the wake of the pressing climate change emergency. While I have tried to do my bit as an individual, I was pleased to hear many good suggestions, such as retrieving any litter I can see while walking my dog.
I would encourage all of my constituents who share my concerns about the environment to join me and get involved in this year’s Great British Spring Clean.”
